What’s it about?

If you follow Graphicsbyte on social media, you may come across posts of metal sculpture. Some of you may be wondering what this is about. Why would a commercial designer post something like this? In 2013 I was finishing up a design class at PSU and received a random text message from an unknown number. The message was an image of a flyer for a Portland art show. The featured artist was Chris Truax who is a master sculptor. I met Chris in a sculpture class while attending Clackamas Community College in 2008. It was great to see that he was living his dreams and headlining his own shows.

When I arrived at the event there was a six-foot daddy long leg made out of an old toaster guarding the entrance of the building. After walking through, the main doors I was surrounded by artwork as if it came from another dimension. It was quite an experience knowing that all this came from one mind. Almost everything had a science fiction vibe. There were two seven foot Salvador Dali inspired sculptures of an elephant and a rhino on both sides of the lobby entrance. The DJ was even wearing a cyberpunk looking mask and part of his helmet was actually plugged into the wall. The main display was a robot named Lilly. This robot is also known as a Thunderbot because she’s made from vintage Thunderbird car parts.

After walking around and critiquing the art with random strangers for twenty minutes, I was soon greeted by Chris. It’s been several years since we last spoke and I found out he put his sim card in an old phone and did a mass shout out to all his old contacts. That’s how I was randomly invited to this event. We exchanged contact info and didn’t speak again until several months later.

The next time we met we caught up and even made future plans to collaborate on projects. It wasn’t long before I designed him a logo and a website. During this time Chris invented a new medium that we now call Karbon Kast. I was one of the first people he shared the process with. I was mind blown by the style and knew this medium was marketable. In the last four years, Chris and I have entered the Karbon Kast into many trade shows and outdoor events. Our favorite type of show is Comic Con because you never know who you may run into.

About The Gallery

Last April we opened our first art gallery together called Truax Gallery. It’s located on 816 main St, Oregon City, OR 97045. Inside you will find a mashup of both of our backgrounds. We have science fiction illustration, Karbon Kast, and out of this world sculptures. We enjoy sharing our artwork with the public but the real interest is in custom commission work. We hope to work together for years to come and introduce our ideas to other creative agencies.
